Recently, Brandy has been looking for ways to spice up her home made brunch dishes. "I'm just getting a little bored of regular old eggs and bacon and pancakes. Time for something new and exciting!" she grumbled to herself. Thinking thusly, she was on the lookout while shopping at her local Jewel when she came across something near the meat section; a row of intriguing looking pouches from a company called Wild Garden.
Turns out, Wild Garden had released a line of quick marinades and heat-and-serve pilafs that were simple to use while adding a bit of Mediterranean flavor to otherwise unremarkable dishes. The marinades don't require any prep work other than dousing one's chosen protein in them immediately before cooking, while the pilafs all simply required about 90 seconds in the microwave. "These might be just the ticket to make my brunch dishes more exciting," Brandy exclaimed.
Lastly, Brandy decided to use the Persian marinade to re-invent chicken and waffles. She took chicken tenderloins and doused them in the aromatic and herbaceous marinade, then coated them in waffle batter (made by adding milk and an egg to a pre-made pancake mix) and pan-fried them until golden brown. The batter took on the flavor of the marinade as well, giving it a rich color and a light crispness that perfectly emulated a waffle. She served this along side the Bulgar side, which had been flavored with a mix of spices and herbs that matched the flavor of the chicken extremely well.
"This is exactly what I hoped for," Brandy said, contentedly, "A simple thing that sparks the imagination towards an infinite possibility of dishes without a lot of added work. I think I may need to make another trip to Jewel to stock up on some more of these lovely products!"
